Audiobooks are a proven literacy resource, which is why they’ve been used in classrooms for decades. The benefits of listening to audiobooks are many, including enhanced vocabulary, fluency and listening skills. In fact, there are reading methods such as The Daily 5, which include listening as part of the curriculum; studies show that when a listening component is added to reading instruction, student achievement increases measurably.  Proficient reading is the product of listening comprehension (i.e. fluency and vocabulary) and decoding skills.

In the U.S., just 32% of fourth graders read proficiently. And students not reading proficiently at the end of third grade are four times more likely not to graduate from high school.  Tales2Go is a 21st Century arrow in the literacy quiver to get kids excited about and skilled at reading. The Tales2Go library ranges from PreK to Young Adult, fiction and nonfiction and includes Spanish and kids’ music areas.
